The Preciado siblings held their first art exhibit reception as a family, on June 11, at the Douglas Art Gallery.
Jose and Ramona Preciado have lived in Douglas for nearly 10 years, with their children; Ozni, Dara, Daniel, Abisai, Gerson, and Abdiel Omar.
The siblings can recall drawing at a young age, at first using only notebook paper and a No. 2 pencil to practice their techniques. As they grew up, the younger siblings would learn from the older which made for a strong foundation in the arts. The siblings went on to attend art classes at Douglas High School and Cochise College where they continue to grow their talents.
The Douglas Art Association is happy to host the talented family and their original works, for the first time at the gallery.
The exhibit features drawings and paintings of portraits, animals and nature, food and more.
This past weekend the Preciado’s sold several paintings during their successful opening exhibition. The exhibit will be open for viewing through the month of June at the Douglas Art Gallery, 625 E 10th Street. The Gallery is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information call (520) 364-6410.
